§ 45. Mr. Westwood
asked the Prime Minister whether he is prepared favourably to consider the setting up of a Royal Commission to inquire into and report on the problems of administration arising out of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1929, and the problems of rating associated with local government?
§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Chamberlain)
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to a question by the hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Mathers) on 28th June last.
§ Mr. Westwood
Is the Prime Minister aware that there is now a unanimous demand from the local authorities in Scotland for such a commission, whereas previously the County Councils Association were not so keenly interested in the problem?
